    Bookmarker's Notes

    FOR WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE CRYING YOUR FACE OFF

    Summary

    Among Francis’s array of faults, he knew himself to be somewhat… forward in his passions. When he fell, he fell hard and without reserve. It was luck- a more superstitious man might have said fate- that he had, at last, fallen for someone who not only did not shy away from his earnestness, but reciprocated it, encouraged it. All they had to do was not muck it up or get themselves hanged before they touched home soil- an easier prospect when not ensconced in James's arms, without James's big hands resting dangerously low on his belly.

    (or, two idiots, saved from the brink of death and on their way back to England, trying, with mixed success, not to break the Articles of War.)

    Summary

    England is a dream, emerging from the thinning mist; unreal.

    England is on this limping frigate; one of the last to leave. Men in blankets, wrapped in tarps, the sweat of waking nightmares oily in their hair.

    James keeps England in the pocket of his greatcoat, tucked against his heart.
